Chwarel Yr Eifl

Seemed a bit breezy at home, but that wouldn’t stop me, I was more worried about the cloud cover. Trouble was it was blowing a gale up in Llithfaen as I set off for Yr Eifl! I managed to make it there though and was amply rewarded! There was a mist over the horizon allowing masses of light rays which made for a great backdrop, with fast moving clouds creating a dance of light across the landscape all around. If only I’d had a little more time I’d have loved to make it down to the crusher house and explore the interiors of some buildings on site, but never mind, I’m more than happy with what I came away

Ffestiniog Railway: Steam 150 (May 2013)

Managed to find time between work to go to this but managed to miss just about everything I had really wanted to see! Never mind, got some good practice in with the 70-210 and even the 17-50 got a good workout. In fact for a change it was the 11-16 that was lagging behind in usage! Saturday was spent entirely in and around Boston Lodge, and Monday was a walk from Boston Lodge all the way to Dduallt. The weather was fine clear skies on Monday, not ideal at all, much better on Saturday with dappled cloud and the odd really dark brooding sky mixing things up and keeping the light interesting!

More procrastination!

Sorry, sorry, sorry! I am ashamed I have been away for so long. Basically I bought a project car – meaning all the days where I’d normally be out with a camera were taken up wielding tools and swearing at my new purchase, then I damaged my old ankle injury again which further hindered things, but anywho, the car is in the paint shop and I’m back to hobbling about with the camera!

I managed to make it to Maenofferen in Blaenau in March, though I clean forgot to post about it here (another sorry!), followed by an unsuccessful venture in Golwern due to manky weather and then just the other night I decided to head over to Trefor to watch the sun go down, so here’s a selection.
